Rain falls, it falls down Each drop unique, meets its death On this hallowed ground What is the significance of each droplet from the clouds to its demise The drop is deemed irrelevant by its death Some drops are lost forever in the mouths of plants Some drops are stored for a later death Subject to torture through purification And taken for its nutrients with millions of other companions As a group they are named rainwater A special group of drops not only survive, but also live on They become reincarnated drops of redemption Taken up to the sky in supernatural fashion Not by the small droplets strength, but by the cloud From where it first derived It is rebirthed to once again live as the water droplet.
